Vinyl siding: Chicago's secret to curb appeal

Prairie School, American Arts and Crafts movement, Greek Revival, Queen Anne, Victorian, American Foursquare and Chicago Bungalow are all architectural styles that predominate in Chicago neighborhoods like Oak Park and the Seward Gunderson Historic District. To protect your Chicago home from the elements, whether it's an architectural classic or contemporary, consider the different styles, textures and colors of today's new vinyl siding. Chicago weather can be brutal--sizzling in the summer and icy in the winter--but vinyl siding can keep your home comfortable. Vinyl siding is durable; fade-, wind- and insect-resistant; and virtually maintenance-free. It can also shield you from outdoor traffic noise and help you save on high utility bills.

Vinyl siding: Chicago options

Whether you decide to re-side your Chicago Queen Anne in the light historic palette of the 1800s or the bolder palette of the 1900s, there are vinyl siding colors that can bring out the best in your historic jewel. Many manufacturers also offer "restoration" vinyl siding in styles such as clapboard, Dutch lap or beaded with a finish that is historically accurate.

You can also find trim that replicates historic gingerbread to bring new life to your aging Victorian beauty. For your Chicago cottage, think about board and batten or rough-cut cedar vinyl siding. Chicago has homes in a variety of styles. Just remember, there are just as many different styles and colors of vinyl siding to bring that all-important curb appeal to your home and to your Windy City neighborhood.
